Free Floating Music

Free Floating

Simplicity and repose are the qualities that measure the true value of any work of art.
–Frank Lloyd Wright

We should listen to the silence with the same attention that we give to the sounds.
–John Cage

Free Floating Music exists to release and promote serene, peaceful ambient music, music that grows out of and flows through the silence around it, sculpting spaces for reflection, repose and rejuvenation.

All music released through Free Floating Music is available for free download via Creative Commons non-commercial licenses.

The music of Seconds Before Awakening (the nom de disque of one Michael S. Waller) is tied up with the history of Free Floating right from the very beginning…. Way back in July of 2008 I played “Zero 2” on the very first installment of my Stillstream radio show. Since then the music of Seconds Before Awakening has graced the show quite a few times and now I am happy to be releasing new music under the Free Floating banner. There are many aspects of the music that reach out to me. There is...

The plans for what would become The Sidereal Cycle took place without any input from me. I first found out about the concept from a post on the Altus blog. As soon as I read it I reached out to Mike (Carss, AKA Altus) with a resounding, “Yes, please! Fans of Free Floating and ambient I’m sure understand my enthusiasm. Simply put, Mike Carss is a master of ambient music, there can be no doubt about that. Of the ambient artists that I listen to and love, I feel that Altus music is the most...

This release almost didn’t happen (though, thankfully for all of us, it obviously has…).  Jack Hertz sent me these tracks back at the beginning of December 2011. I promptly entered them into my regular rotation of new music and gave them lots of thorough listening. When new music is submitted to Free Floating I try to listen to it in as many ways as possible—doing work at the computer, while reading, in headphones as I go to sleep…. I want to experience the music fully.  As I listened...

Here's something I wrote in 2010 regarding the original release of Strange Skies:  Back when I was doing my radio show on Stillstream, I was dedicated to finding as much new music as I could, so I would find and listen to a lot of music. Some was good, some was fair, some was awful. But then there were some albums that I would keep coming back to. Even as new music appeared for me to play, I would be drawn to certain releases that just rose above the rest.  To me, Strange Skies is one of...

There are several reasons why I am especially glad to be releasing Tange's I Will Tell The Audient Void on Free Floating.  First is that Gordie (AKA Gordon MacMillan AKA Tange) is just a really nice guy. I only really know him through the digital realm; having chatted in the Stillstream chatroom, interacted occasionally on Facebook, and exchanged emails. But each time I have come away with an impression of Gordie as a just a really straightforwardly good guy.  Second is that I now have an...

Like many artists, I first encountered daniel in the Stillstream chat room and then, I believe, through the Relaxed Machinery community. It was on the latter where he posted a SoundCloud link to “Being Peace”. Here is what he had to say about it:  I recorded this piece, "Being Peace" about 10 years ago, and I have never come close to its perfection since…. During that day that ended with Being Peace, I was for some reason unentangled with the result, which mental state I was...
